UPDATE ON MARCH 14: MULTIPLE showers are expected to pour in both Hervey Bay and Maryborough today.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster James Thompson said some areas could get as much as 30mm.

"There's showers happening right now," he said at 11:50am.

"Across the whole day, there could be about 2-3 showers.

"They are likely to be isolated showers, which means they will miss quiet a few places and not everywhere is going to be seeing rain."

Mr Thompson said both Hervey Bay and Maryborough were likely to receive a similar amount of precipitation.

We need to wait to see what will actually happen, but Bureau of Metrology forecaster Harry Clark warned the chance of rain appearing doesn't refer to the quantity.

He said it could be as little as 0.2mm in a day.

"There's about a 70% chance of a shower for each day this week," Mr Clark said.

"If the upper low pressure system from northern New South Wales moves into southern Queensland, it will increase it and that's when the heaviest rainfall will occur."

In Hervey Bay and Maryborough, each day is expected to reach a temperature in the low-30s.
